How to Make Cristina’s Malunggay (moringa) Powder

crisonthesidelines.wordpress.com July 9, 2008

A simple way to make your powdered malunggay is this:

1. Harvest Malunggay leaves early morning just when the morning dew has dried up.

2. Bundle your malunggay leaves and hang upside down in a well ventilated room. Don’t expose it to sunlight.

3. Use brown paper bag to catch the falling leaves. You may use clothes’ pin to secure the brown paper bag to where you hang the malunggay leaves.

4, In due time the leaves will fall in the paper bag. When the leaves dried up   grind/blend. There you have it. Your home made malunggay powder.

5. Seal in a container. You can use the powder for your vegetable, soup, bread, dessert etc. mixes. You can even use this as tea.

just an additional tip. Use only malunggay fresh from the tree.

Another way of making your malunggay powder is to dry your freshly harvested malunggay  indirectly under the sun then pound when dried.

  1. A million thanks for sharing your recipes on moringa. God bless!

  2. ask ko lng po if hanggang keln po maglalast ung malunggay powder after nagawa at nasealed? thanx po in anvance.. wait ko po reply..more power po sa inyo!!!

    • may kaibahan poba ng result sa dried leaves under the sun with the ventilated room, which is better. thanks po

      • it is not advisable to dry it under the sun

  3. Alam mo lailanie, di ko alam, sa totoo lang. Yung shelf life kasi ng mga ginagawa nating pagkain, nalalaman yun kung dadaan sa laboratory testing. ang gagawin dun e mag sa submit ka ng sample sa, for example, BFAD. ang gagawin nila e iaanalyze ang sample base sa kanilang pamantayan. Kung pasa ito, itatabi nila ang sample at every so often ay iaanalyze nila ang quality nito, ang isa sa pinakamahalagang aspect ay moisture content. ang moisture kasi ang mag dedetermine kung aamagin ba ang product o hindi. Hope I gave you an idea.

    • Thank you for sharing this.

      Ask ko lang, if it depends on the moisture content, would it be good to say na the drier it is, the longer it will last?

      • i guess your right. but basically, it lasts for 6 months not really longggggggggggggg time.

    • sobrang ganda ng mga health benefits namkukuha naten sa malunggay
      ang maswerte tayo na isa ang ating bansa sa nabiyayaan ng halamang ito.
      Sa ngayon po ako ay kumagawa ng isang thesis patungkol sa malunggay at sobrang impress po ako sa mga protinang laman ng punong ito.
      Aside sa makkaiwas na tayo sa mga sakit at lulusog ang ating katawan ito ay nag bibigay lakas din sa ating pangangatawan.
      THANK GOD WE HAVE MALUNGGAY IN OUR COUNTRY.

      • o nga princess

  4. ..thank u po tlaga!! malaking 2long po ung suggestion nyo..more power po sa inyo..salamat po ulit..

  5. Lailanie

    you are most welcome

  6. ate para san po ba ang malunggay powder? san po pwede syang gamitin?sa pagkain po ba? anong mga types of foods po?

  7. Kristel,

    puede me gamitin yung malunggay powder sa mga pagkain na gusto mong dagdagan ng nutrients. Tulad ng bread, pastillas, cup cakes, ulam. Wag lang masyadong madami na ma- alter na ang lasa ng putahe mo. Tantyahan talaga yun. Trial and error ka.

    cris

    • that was enlightening…

  8. Thanks for the tip! That really sounds easy to do. :) I mentioned your post in my blog too.

  9. Hi Meg Si,

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and for linking my blog to your post.
    I will check your blog also from time to time to get ideas. My child is on Gluten free Casein Free diet.
    cris

  10. you have a very informative site… I will try preparing these recipes you published here. We are greatly endorsing the propagating of malunggay in my hometown to combat malnutrition and be a future source of livelihood for my poor kababayans. I want to seek your advise on where I could learn how to make pancit canton in commercial quantity and where to source the equipments needed as im planning to put up a small business… thank You

  11. Hi mearl,

    I’m glad that you consider my blog informative. Thank you.

    As to your inquiry, you may start with your local DOST office and inquire about training, equipments needed, etc. If you are in Manila, TLRC is a good source of info also.

    Good luck to your endeavors.

    cris

  12. gaano po katagal ang pag dry ng leaves. salamat po.

  13. ano pa po pala ang alternatives kung wala po kaming blender para ma-grind/blend ang malunggay leaves?

  14. im looking for malunggay ice cream recipe which i could teach our women to sell to public schools so children can have access to more nutritious ice cream .pls send me all recipes. thanks

  15. i commend this blog for helping a lot of people to combat the chronic nutritional problem we are contronted today. more power to you.

  16. emmanped

    Yung pag dry ng leaves depende sa panahon at dami ng dahon. kung konting dahon lang at airy naman madali lang. yung sa post ko na may pictures ng drying process, 2 days yon. Pag mainit ang panahon at mahangin ang lugar na pagsasabitan mo ng malunggay, mas madali.

    Kung wala kang blended puede siguro i-crush mo na lang sa kamay, dikdikin mo o, gayatin mo. Subukan mo na lang kung saan mas maganda ang magiging resulta.

    cris

  17. ellen,

    thanks for dropping by my blog. I’ll check if I can find a recipe. I didn’t give this malunggay ice cream attention before but I will try to find a recipe and I’ll post it here.

    Good luck to your endeavors.

    cris

  18. Ellen,

    I didn’t find any entry on malunggay ice cream when I searched the web. Maybe if you know how to make ice cream you can start experimenting with how much malunggay to put in it. you can choose between dried malunggay leaves or malunggay powder or fresh leaves. I personally don’t know how to make ice cream. Good luck.

    cris

  19. mam cris pang fertility din b ang amalunggay?
    thanks..

    ana..

  20. ate cristina,
    im a 4th year student po from meycauayan ask ko lang po if pano ko magagawang capsule ung malunggay para po maging antibiotic? research po kasi namin.. maraming thank you po

  21. Ana

    Ang alam ko may young politician tayo ngayon na all praises with malunggay. Sabi niya, dahil sa malunggay nagka anak daw sila ni misis na matagal na nilang pinagsusumikapan. Malunggay daw ang nakatulong sa kanila.

    Anyway, I heard na malunggay increases the sperm count of males. Alam mo na some young males ay medyo abusado sa katawan these days kaya by the time na gusto na nila magkababy medyo weak na siguro ang quality sa sperm.

    Di ba nutritious ang malunggay? So kung always ka iinom o kakain ng malunggay lalakas ang resistensya mo. Makakatulong din yun siguro to strengthen also the sperm cells. Saka sabi sa treesforlife.org mas lumalakas ang power ng malunggay pag dried ito. pls check out their website.

    Good luck.

    cris

    • Dear Cristina,

      Talaga po nagkaanak sila bec. of malunggay?subukan ko nga,gusto n po kase nmin magkababay ng asawa ko pero wala pa,ilang years n kami naghihintay sana ngayon dumating na.salamat po sa info.

      noemz

      • God Bless Noemi

  22. Bea,

    Ang basa ko sa tanong mo kung puede bang ilagay sa capsule ang malunggay. Puede basta bibili ka lang nung capsule gels. Before, napanood ko sa kabuhayang swak na swak na puedeng ilagay ang virgin coconut oil sa gels na iyon. Puede kang mag check sa CARICA kung paano ka makakabili ng gels na yon.

    Dapat powdered malunggay na ang ilalagay mo sa capsule gels. kung gaano kadami yun ang dapat pang i research.

    Good luck.

    cris

  23. hindi na ba nililinis yan bago ipa dry?

    and pwede ba ihalo yan with water only?

  24. Mike

    Oo hinuhugasan muna ang malunggay tapos i shake mo rin para matanggal ang excess water bago ibitin.

    Hindi ko pa na try na ihalo sa water directly. Puede siguro kung hot water parang tea ba. Ganun din siguro ang ginagawa sa mga malunggay tea na binebenta sa mga drug stores ngayon.

    cris

  25. thanks.

  26. hello ulit cristina

    paano mo pala hinuhugas?babad lang sa tubig?

  27. Hi! good day, Thanks for the information about malunggay, I am a school teacher here in Cavite. Last Sept my principal told me that the district wil be having an investigatory project, wala pa sa isip ko nuon na ano kaya ang aking entry for this competition, naisip ko n amalunggay na lang kaya na gawing tea, so nag pa project ako sa mga bata na magpatuyo ng malunggay at gawing powder ito. Yun powdered malunggay ang gawin naming tea but one of mu co techar told me na meron na sa market ng malunggay tea, naisip ko n alang na ihalo ang powdered malunggay sa polvorn and chips. I started to make a write ups for our investigatory project through your website nakita ko ang mga information na kung ano ang pde gawin s apowdered malunggay. Ang sa akin naman ay powdered na powdered yun malunggay dahil hindi lang sapat ang blender para ma powder cya binayo ko pa ang powdered malunggay para talaga lumabas na powdered na tulad ng milk and flour. Ang result naging maganda sa polvoron na nagustuhan naman ng lahat pati na ang mga judges. in fact 2nd placer kami sa District and Divison Science Fair. This coming Oct 23-24 kasama kami sa Regional Science Fair. Ang Title ng entry ko “Powdered Malunggay Leaves – Used as Main Ingredient in Polvoron and Chips

    • Pareho din po ba ang procedure na ginawa nyo? Pwede po ba mag pae-mail ng datails, marami po kasi kaming malunggay sa bakuran.

  28. gud day!…saan po bang mas nagreretain yong nutrients 100% ….air dried malunggay ba o ung e steam muna bago e air dry?pls po i need ur response for our study,i’m a 4rth year college po and i am having a study about making a malunggay powder……..

  29. ano po ba ang mga inihalo sa malunggay powder para maging additives sa mga pagkain?

  30. pwd po bang malaman kung ano ung technologies na gagamitin sa paggawa ng malunggay powder? thanx po……maraming salamat talaga…hintay po ako ng response nyo pls po…..thanx…godbless!!!!!!

  31. Paano po ba ang paggawa ng malunggay chips? Natikman ko po ito sa Agrilink 2008. Masarap! Pwedeng gawing negosyo.

  32. Pres,

    Sa totoo lang di ko alam. Ang alam ko lang ay mas mataas ang nutrients ng dried malunggay than the fresh malunggay. Kindly check out treesforlife.org for more info. I don’t think you need to add anything pa sa malunggay powder kasi iyon na ang additive sa food recipe mo.

    Kung sa technology, ang alam ko ay household way lang. I can’t call it technology. You may try researching DOST for technology which you can apply to drying malunggay.

    Good luck.

  33. Gabriela

    I re-research ko yan gabby.

    cris

  34. I took interest about the health benefits of malunggay for my two kids about a month ago and since then I have been researching the internet. I found out that you can mix malunggay with honey to have a better taste. Fresh from the tree and after washing, I squeeze the juice and mix with honey 1:1. Am I doing it right? Could you comment on my mixture? My procedure?

  35. joselle,

    I think the honey is a bit too much. But it really depends on the one who’s going to drink the malunggay juice. Honey is good because it is natural, however, anything good will turn out bad if it is too much.

    On the other hand, if you will still mix this mixture with water, I think it’s okay. I know kids really want something sweet. Knowing that the taste of fresh malunggay is somewhat strong.

    But what you’re doing is good since you are also giving your kids liquid chlorophyll. Just watch out the honey because if its too much, you might be nourishing the candida albicans in their tummy.

    cris

  36. hi…may i ask if whats the use of powdered malungay?………tnxs…

  37. virgil
    malunggay powder is used to enhance the nutrients of foods lacking in nutrients. Now, it’s also [ossible that the food is already nutritious but you still want to enhance it. It’s basically about nutrition.
    cris

  38. My 2 kids is sakitin, at don’t like to eat vegetables, especially malunggay, hindi ba maglalasang malunggay pag hinalo ko sa ibang putahe ang powder?

    thanks

  39. I wonder if you could simply dry them in microwave oven. I tried a few and it worked.

  40. elmer,

    a friend told me today that you can dry malunggay in anyway as long as it is not exposed to sun. so i think what you did is okay.

    cris

  41. Gud day…
    can u give me a formula of malunggay powder ?pls, mam cris thanx a lot…………..

  42. hi did moringa (malunggay) can help you with your ovuolation? or meaning it can help the fertility?

  43. mary ann,
    yung sa ovulation, di ko alam. Maybe it’ll just help you improve your general health. Make your cells healthy. Maybe that’s what it will do to you. If you have good health maybe your fertility will follow.

    pero what I can attest to is fresh malunngay juice helps ease pains during my mentrual period. These past few years I suffer from severe mentrual cramps whenever I have my monthly period. I feel feverish. If I don’t drink malunggay juice I suffer for two days. If I drink malunggay juice, I can work all day.

  44. elow pano ba gumawa ng malungay powder project ko kasi sa science ehh

  45. rafael,
    may mga post sa paggawa niyan dito sa blog. please pakitignan lang ang ibang posts ko. Salamat.

    cris

  46. hi cris,
    i live here in new york, wala akong makitang fresh malunggay dito meron sila frozen na with water do you think okay pareho paba yun ng nutrition content nun as fresh malunggay. and one time i tried to put it in munggo soup kaya lang mapait sya dahil kaya frozen na ‘to? i’ll wait for your response

    myriam

  47. we buy malunggay dried leaves,any interested supplier pls. contact us @ 09154099152 or email me ..gokibori@hotmail.com

  48. Hey Christina,

    Thank you for the information you’ve been sharing on this blog. It was all sooo interesting and informative.. Information about Mallungay has just reached me so I was doing some research on this tree and that was how I stumbled upon it and am I glad I did!

    I was actually trying to find a source of Mallungay seeds – I’d like to experiment with planting some of these trees and hope to harvest the leaves to help my family members fight off their ailments – We are a family of 9 siblings and more than 1/2 of them have either cancer, heart disease or auto-immune disorder of one kind or other..

    They have medical help right now, but I am a firm believer that most of these diseases are the cause of malnutrition and if I could have the natural healing properties of the Mallungay tree at hand, it would ensure their healing without compromising their already weakened health..

    In this respect, I wonder if you could let me know how I may obtain some of the seeds from these trees? I would be very grateful..

    I’m thinking that I’d like to make a trip there and visit one of these farms or something like that.. I believe it would be a very enriching learning experience for me.. I’ve never been to the Philippines anyway..

    Thank you and God Bless!
    Zoe

  49. Zoe,

    hi. Thanks for dropping by. I can ask some friends for malunggay seeds I may be able to provide what you need depending on the quantity. if for personal needs only, I can give you some. However, it seems you are not from the philippines, the probable problem is how to bring them out of the phils. you might have a problem with the airline. anyway, if you really want to visit the philippines, email me if you think i might be of help. my email address is crisonthesidelines@yahoo.com
    It’s good that you believe in malunggay. It is really a wonder veggie. At present, if there is any health problem in my family, we have only two immediate remedies: virgin coconut oil and/or malunggay. Its high time we go back to the basics.

    good luck, hope to see you soon here in the philippines.

    cris

    • ms cristina, have you heard about “dehydrator” sa work ko dati, ginagamit namin yun, para gumawa ng crackers, made of vegetables, flaxseeds, sesame seeds and seaweed ang sarap very healthy and still raw, kasi kontrolado temperature. try ko na ilagay sa dehydrator yung malunggay leaves, saka ko durugin. try ko lang kung mas masarap. hindi kasi masarap ang hirap inumin. dati lagi ko siya mix sa fresh orange juice, tapos e-blender ko, mas masarap kaya lang ma-trabaho. gusto ko sana prepared na tapos anytime na gusto ko madali gawin.
      ayaw ko naman bumili nung mga branded na at na-processed na kasi “i don’t know behind the scene” baka may halo na.
      talagang very good siya sa may insomia. experience ko ganito, paghiga ko madali ako makatulog, dati yung timer ng tv ko siguro naka 3X ko na “on uli” kasi di ako talaga makatulog, nawala yun ng uminum ako ng malunggay juice. tapos ika-8th hour automatic nagigising na ako, at di talaga ako inaantok, maski isip ko naging very sharp.
      ms cristina may na-o-overdose ba sa malunggay.
      gusto ko sana magtanim dito sa HK, paano po ba? sabi nila ayaw daw ng malunggay sa malamig na lugar, pero talagang gusto magtamin.
      maraming salamat sa blog, very imformative. maganda ang sharing.
      maraming salamat po

      • hi charo,

        ang paniniwala ko ay maski anong bagay pag sobra ay nakakasama. kung gusto mo lang i maintain ang health mo, 1/2 to 1 tsp of powder is good na para sa kin. pero syempre di naman ako doktor. pero base sa mga nabasa ko na, yung mga green vegetables meron oxalate na puede mag cause ng crystals sa ating urinary track kaya di rin puede sobra sobra.
        about sa pag tatanim jan sa hongkong. try mo lang dala ng buto ng malunggay at itanim. subukan natin, baka puede di ba?

        salamat sa mga ibinahagi mo sa aming lahat. may natutunan talaga kami

    gusto ko pong magtanim ng malunggay ng malunggay sa probinsya namin sa nueava ecija.

    Ask ko lang po kung gagamit po ako ng improvised solar dehydrator, mga gaano katagal ko po kaya mapapatuyo ang dahon ng malunggay?

    salamat po, marami po kayo natutulungan at pinipilit ko ding ituro ito sa aking mga mag-aaral!

    Thank you again and GOD bless!

    • hi bax, dito ako sa Hk, sa work ko dati gumagamit kami ng “dehydrator” hindi ko alam kung ano kaibahan nun sa “solar dehydrator na sinasabi mo. tingin ko di gaano matagal sa dehydrator. kasi yung almonds nilalagay namin sa dehydrator
      (di ako ha!) yun ang matagal, siguro kung malunggay mabilis lang, e-try ko ha! punta ako sa dati kong work, meron pa kasi ako dito ng malunggay naka-freezer. balitaan kita.
      Charo

  56. Bax,

    salamat naman. sori di ko masagot ang tanong mo pero mag re research ako then I will get back to you.

  62. Dear Cris,

    Hello, my friend gave me some mallungay capsules, I believe in the healing power of this miracle tree. If I order from Carita or JVN food products and be the sole agent in England It is a herbal/supplement food , will there be restrictions?

    I am very much interested to promote this to the filipino community. Most of the young genration now eat processed foods. I am on healthy living and grow my own organic vegs in my allotment.

    Looking forward to your reply.

  63. Dear Naomi,

    It really depends on your place’ business requirements and restrictions. Basically, you have to import your malunggay products from the Philippines, or, if you know somebody who regularly goes to phils and back to England, maybe you can just ask that person to bring the products with him/her or the manufacturer here will send you their products via a courier.

    But to sell the products there, you must check out your local business requirements. But I think its okay to sell to your friends, etc., for a start. That way, you will know the demand. If its good, why not go full blast. Good Luck. Please keep in touch.

  64. Hi! I’m Dick, 34 years, I was stricken by chronic kidney disease last year and has been on peritoneal dialysis for 7 months now.

    I heard on a popular radio station that moringa roots can help cure kidney disorders even those who are already on dialysis.

    Is there a scientific basis to that claim? If so, this nature’s wonder could already be the answer that we dialysis patients have been waiting for.

  65. Hi Dick,

    I want to share with you the info from StuartXchange. Here’s the link:
    http://www.stuartxchange.org/Malunggay.html

    I hope this site will increase your knowledge about Malunggay. I also have a medical condition now that I’m treating with malunggay and other vegetables. I will write about it this week.

    If you find new info, please share with us also.
    Hope you get really better.

  66. i want to try making the malunggay juice, how can i preserve it if iwant to pursue this as a business. Please give me info how to process it. also what are the natural flavors I can add.

    I am engage in engineering services and we can make machines to produce this.
    Thanks

    • Perly, i have a plan to buy a Soap press machine either a Hydraulic or Pneumatic machine, do you have an idea of where to buy this kind of equipment? because i have read that you engaged in Engineering services if so, pls give me an info or send it to me via my email address… rdams_17@yahoo.com.. i will wait your reply… thank you in advanced

  67. perly

    am sorry but i haven’t gone to researching how to preserve the juice. I always believe it’s best to keep it fresh. I hope if you find ways to preserve it and has made a machine to do it, you’ll have the time to share it with us. Thanks.

  68. hi everyone! its so nice to see a blog like this.

    I just want to share my moms experience with malunggay.

    My mom has diabetes for more than 30 years now and early this year she was in and out of the hospital due to hypertension. The doctors gave her several medicines for her hypertension and diabetes but it didnt work until one of her friends told her about the power of malunggay.

    Since she started drinking malunggay juice and taking malunggay powder her blood pressure became stable and her blood sugar at normal level.

    She also has a special malunggay juice recipe, she’s mixing malunggay leaves with garlic, ginger, onion and sili (chili) and then put it on a blender. According to some herbalists, this recipe is good for diabetes, hypertension, flu and cold prevention and a good source of vitamins and minerals. For teenagers who has pimple or acne problems, this is the solution to your problem too.

    I am not a malunggay user yet but I’ve seen the effects on my family, friends and relatives’ health.

    My mom is now spreading the wonders of malunggay in our community to help those who cant afford to go the hospital. She’s preparing malunggay juice and would give it to our neighbors for free.

    One more thing, for those people who’s been dreaming of a fair and rosy cheeks skin, forget about glutathione, try malunggay powder or malunggay juice for 2 weeks and you’ll see the difference.

    btw, I know someone who’s selling malunggay powder and I’ll go there today to buy for myself.

  69. hi nani,

    I’m so happy to hear this news. Thank you for sharing the good news. btw also, i am already making malunggay powder and is available to anyone who is interested to buy. Soon, I will start a multiply account for my products, vermicompost, composting worms, organic coconut vinegar, and malunggay powder.

    thanks for dropping by

    • you’re welcome.

      cris

  82. hi cristina!

    makakatulong b ung malunngay tea sa nararamdaman kong hilo. tnx

    • hi carina,

      U may try it. vegetable naman kasi yung malunggay kaya mabuting subukan mo rin. Ang masasabi ko lang may mapapansin kang pagbabago sa katawan mo at sa pakiramdam mo pag nagmaintain ka ng malunggay. Puede namang ikaw lang ang gumawa ng malunggay leaf powder mo. Try it. Mag po-post ako ng paraan from Bureau of Plant Idustry ng pag gawa ng malunggay powder para mas makatulong sa lahat.

  83. sir / madam,

    ask ko lang if owkie ba xa ihalo sa paggawa ng tinapay?…

    di poh ba mamapektuhan ang lasa nito?

    at di rin poh ba mbabawasan ang content ng powder if i-heat xa sa oven with the tinapay….

    tnx u poh…

    • peter,

      isinasama ko siya sa puto batter na ginagawa ko. hindi ko alam if gaano ang nababawas sa nutrients everytime na ginagawa ko ito. kung mabawasan siguro, me matitira pa rin maski papaano. pero ang kakainin sa tinapay, pag nalaman niya na may malunggay, sasaya siya at mag re release ng good hormones (serotonin ba ang tawag dun?) kaya me good effect na rin, di ba?

  84. where can i buy malunggay powder here in manila

  85. ate cristina is it true po ba n my malunggay condensed ?

    • kim, siguro ang ibig sabihin ng condensed is concentrated ang nutrients kapag dried na siya.

  86. ate anlaking tulong po ng pag bigay niyo ng recipe thank you po and more powers!

  87. gudpm maam,
    napili ko po kasi un malunggay sa gagawin kong thesis, pwede po kaya gumawa ng malunggay powder tapos ilagay sa capsule?

    • puede roxanne. puede ang udea mo. it’s a good theses idea

  88. This malunggay is quite easy to propagate. Every vacant lot should have a tree or two. In order to preserve the Vitamin C and other heat labile vitamins, it should be taken uncooked. The powder is indeed convenient. I remember as a child we have a malunggay tree and my grandmother sells it on an honor system – For 5 centavos, the buyer just pick what he or she needs directly from the tree ! That’s many years ago.

    • thanks manny for sharing your thoughts.

      cris

  89. Hello everyone… this is an extraordinary blog i should say… very interesting… thank you Ms Cris… i learn a lot this day…
    Here in Bulacan, a word of mouth runs about the importance of moringa. saying they heard that from a radio station airing about herbal medicine….
    i just then followed through your previous blogs today and then bridge the information gap…
    Maraming salamat uli and Go Bless you!

    • God Bless you also.

  90. hi tina,

    okay lang ba na kahit hindi brown paper ang paglalagyan? at tska what the difference sa original na leaves kesa sa dry and powder? may nabawas ba sa nutrients ?

    thanks

    • aside from brown paper puede rin net bag para airy. puede mo rin himayin na at ilagay sa bilao, pero halu-haluin mo para mahanginan ang lahat ng dahon.

      walang difference sa dry leaves na at powder. mas convenient lang kasi yung powder na at mas madali itabi for future use.

      try making it na. good luck

  91. malunggay coffee marunong ako

    • hi jojo,

      please i share naman sa mga friends natin yung procedure mo para mas marami ang matulungan. Ng malamam din ng marami ang pag gawa ng moringa coffee. salamat.

  93. this day ko lang po na searcg blog site nyo at ang dami ko na natutuhan.gagawin ko rin po lhat ng pwede gawin sa malunggay marami na rin po ako kc akong nararamdaman sa katawan. ayaw ko rin kasi uminom na kung anu ano gamot dahil may side effect po.sana dito sa malunggay powder at juice gumaling ako. tnx po

    • hi ronnie. oo nga try mo yan. saka you may want to try virgin coconut oil also. that’s to improve your immune system

  94. greetings,
    after drying ng malunggay i’ve read somewhere na isangag pa. is it necessary to do so or this procedure is just to make sure na maalis ang moisture. In case na isangag nga, for how long should we do it.

    Also which leaves are most preferred, the young or the matured ones.

    thank you and best regards
    rubi

    • the right word is ibusa. so walang mantika. mga 2-3 minutes of roasting is enough. best is the green leaves. kasi pag kukunin mo yung young leaves, mamamatay na yung malunggay at wala ka nang ma ha harvest sa susunod. heheheh. good luck

      • hello again,
        thanks for your prompt reply, medyo late ko nabasa kasi naglakwatsa ako sa mindanao area. IBUSA pala ang term, thanks.
        right now medyo marami ang na powder kong malunggay, isip ko na i-capsule, any idea as to how much should i put in each capsule. ano kaya dosage, meron din kayang over dosage.

      • hi cris,
        question again, yun bang powdered malunggay (carefully bottled and sealed) is better to be stored sa refrigerator? also, I tried my first cup of tea, medyo light lang ang ginawa ko(2 teaspoons in a cup of hot water) baka kasi mag react ang tummy ko. so far, umikot pa rin, ha ha ha. but i am still okay so far.

      • oo rubi mas mabuti i store siya sa ref to keep it away from light. yung 2 tsps medyo madami yun para sa akin sa isang inuman. 1 tspn lang kaya ko hehehe

      • hi rubi. if you put it in a capsule, basically you can make 5 capsules in 1 tspoon (5g)

  95. hi cristina kagaya mo ako ay fanatic ng malunggay at luyang dilaw ang kapatid ko may autism at epilepsy umabot n ng 17k per month ang gastos namin sa anti psychotic drugs at anticonvulsant nya gusto ko sana ishare ang aking sucess stories sa tulong ng malunggay at luyang dilaw ngaun ang gamot nya ay 11k na lang

    • hi grace. salamat naman at may bago tayong input for special children’ diet. naka gluten free casein free (GFCF) diet ba kapatid mo? alam mo, maganda talaga yung virgin coconut oil. makakatulong na malinis yung digestive system niya. please search on virgin coconut oil and autism/attention disorder

  96. helo po,

    tama po ba ung ginawa ko ,kc po nagdry ako na malunggay leaves 3 days, then after na dry binlender ko agad at yung powder nilagay ko glass container na sealded at nilagay ko sa ref. bali do ko na po binusa . Sa pagkain po ibinubudbod nmin yung powder sa mainit na kanin at ulam ,naglalagay din ako sa kape. pag po ginagawa ko siya ng tea nilalagay ko lang sa mainit na tubig at inihahalo , ok lang po ba kainin din yung mga lumulutang na powder sa tea?

    • lahat ng ginagawa mo okay. di naman kelangan ibusa kung maganda ang pag ka dry. lalp na at nilalagay mo pa sa ref.

      yung paggamit, ginagawa rin namin yun pag budbod sa kanin at ulam at lagay sa mainit na tubig.

      para sa kin sayang naman kung sasalain pa at itatapon ang dahon na lumutang kasi nadun yung nutrients.

  97. hi mis cristina kc po every morning umiinom po ako ng malungay tea pinapakulaan ko lng po sya.tapos my nbsa po ako na ang malungay eh nkaka control ng fertility ng babae po.tapos my nabasa din po ako n nakakatulong 2 para mabuntis ka.naguguluhan po ako.paki help naman po.kung dapat ko tigil pag inom ng malungay kc plan ko po mag family na.tenks po.

    • YUN DAW MALUNGGAY MYLENE E NAKAKA INCREASE NG SPERM COUNT KAYA BUKPD SA YO E MABUTING ANG PARTNER MO E UMINOM DIN. PARANG ANG NARINIG KO MAS MABUTI PAG FRESH/ YUNG I GULAY MO BA. GOOD LUCK

    • I think I can answer that….. kung leaves lang iinumin niyo, no problem kasi mas manonourish ang reproductive system niyo especially kung both husband and wife ang magcoconsume mas matutulungang kayong magbuntis. What is said to be causing infertility ay yung malunggay roots… however, the roots is important too kasi in combination with the leaves mas lalong mapapabilis ang paggaling sa sakit including a host of dreaded diseases —- true!!!

      Thank you to Ms. Cristina for putting up this blog. I have a bottle of Virgin Coconut oil from Carica which i haven’t tried consuming yet, I wonder if I can produce my own VCO at a lesser cost. May method po ba kayo and approximate costing available?

      • thank you also for dropping by my corner. as to vco ian, about 16-20 coconuts will give you 1 liter of vco. it varies because it depends on the size of the coconuts, maturity, and how well you press it. I will discuss more of it in future posts if my sked allows it.

        Of course, you will save a lot if you make it. Just invest time. Its best if the coconuts you use are freshly harvested.

  98. ..anu po ba mas ok gamitin sa muffin?blended malunggay or owdered malungay?..tnx poh..

    • blended malunggay ang ginagamit ko maureen, baked or stemed muffins

  99. Hi gud day i’ am Princess 4thyear college student at Bulacan State University and I am going to conduct a simple research about malunggay with spinach that give energy and source of nutrition in our body i am very glad to nutrition benefits of malunggay plant because it can help many health problem and it is also a very nutritional vegetable in the Philippines we are bless to have malunggay tree in our country.

  102. ate papano po ba gumawa ng polvoron na may kasamang malunggay?

    • may recipe dito sa blog guilbert please search na lang ha? good luck

  103. Here in Manila there are companies involved in MLM / Networking business which actually sells the malunggay powder in capsule form at P10 to P14 per 500 mg. capsule and still it sells because the product really works (aside of course from the marketing strategy) ….. thru this blog, we know more or less already how much we can save, the problem na lang is sourcing the fresh malunggay leaves. I’m would like to try planting them in pots or plastic bags and see if I could propagate malunggay shrubs on our rooftop area.

    By the way Ms. Cristina, have you any write-up on how to produce Virgin Coconut Oil? I have one bottle from Carica which I haven’t tried yet. I wonder if I could make one myself using coconuts from the market or from nearby provinces. Would it be worth the effort and money?

    Thanks and More Power!

  104. Thank you for starting on this very informative topics re: Malunggay/Moringa. I would like to ask a follow up question regarding the shelf-life of Malunggay Powder. Since I know you are selling them also, how long do you think they will last based on your personal recommendation? Would you still stick to the 6months you mentioned in your previous answer?

    Thank you and God Bless!

    • yes denise. I stick to my 6 months shelf life. God Bless!

  105. ate nu poh ba ung mga materials nito ? gagawin ko lang poh kc toh as a investigatory project . Thanks :D

  106. Hi Ate Cris. I’m so interested with your malunggay powder. Infact I had already dried leaves however i dried them directly under the sun. then store it in containers. Is drying directly under the sun lessens the nutrients of the malunggay leaves? Please give info about this. More power to your blog!

  107. ask q lang po after drying the malunggay leaves..ok lng po ba na isanglag or ilagay sa kawali, halohaluin ito but in low fire??and wat po ba talaga ang right color ng moringa powder??dark green or light green..thx po…4 project po kasi.. God bless!

    • ang color ng powder depended yan sa color din ng naharvest mo na dahon. yung dark green lang na dahon ang gamitin mo. good luck

      • tnx po sa info…it help a lot.now i know mas better pala ang dark green na color ng malunggay leaves..God bless!!

  108. gud day!!gusto ko pong gumawa ng malunggay capsule para gamitin ng pamilya o later posibleng business na rin… kaso lang di ko po alam kung saan pwdeng makabili ng manual capsule filler? mas mabuti kung banda bacolod city lang po? thanks and more power!!

    • please try to contact ipi in cebu. yung gumagawa ng efficasecent oil kasi sabi ng friend ko, meron daw ang ipi.

  109. pwd po ba sa broiler to mix in thier feeds

    • oo jane. either you boil the fresh leaves and give to your chickens or you add powder to their water. just dilute it well kasi baka masobrahan din

  110. Ma’am my alam po b kayo n ngbbnta n malunggay leaves?pra po sa pfs nmin..ung mdmihan po kz 10kg mlunggy leaves ung need nmin a day.tnx po

  111. [...] The busiest day of the year was April 7th with 425 views. The most popular post that day was How to Make Cristina’s Malunggay (moringa) Powder. [...]

  112. hi ate tina,

    ask ko lang po…pede ba ung malunggay na nabibili sa palengke gawin powder di kasi un fresh galing sa puno…at saka pede ba un e boil lang parang juice ipa inom q sa 1 year old baby q…kulang daw kc sya sa calcium…saka may skin allergy xa buwan2 kami nasa doctor..

    • joy,

      tanim ka lang ng malunggay madali naman tumubo. for the meantime, hingi ka muna sa mga kapitbahay. wag yung galing sa palengke kasi baka hindi naman iningatan yung mga dahon. baka nahulog sa lupa, at saka naaalikabukan at nauusukan sa palengke.

      puede naman sa bata yung pinakuluang dahon. basta diluted lang di masyado puro kasi yung mga green vegetables meron oxalate. pag masobrahan masama din.

      kung sabawan mo na lang yung malunggay kasama ng gabi, kalabasa. puede mo ring samahan ng okra o alugbati maski anong gulay na meron ka.
      pakuluan mo lang sa tubig yung sahog na sobrang isda, prito o inihaw, hinimay. isabay mo yung gabi. pag kulo, yung kalabasa. isa pang kulo at yun namang okra. last ilagay ang malunggay o/at alugbati. yung asin joy wag kalimutan. masarap na sabaw yan. Puedeng wala ng iba pang ulam yan na lang.

  113. I got i lot of information from the blog. Do you know where to buy malunggay powder?

    • hi nolan, where are you from? cebu? manila?

  114. hi ms cristina paano kita makontak pag gusto ko bili ng malunggay powder. sana sa manila lang ang location mo. the best ‘tong blog mo.
    God bless you because you’re a blessing to us.
    more power!
    charo

    • salamat din sa mga nag babahagi ng kanilang kaalaman katulad mo charo. God Bless!

      • hi mam cris,

        nagsusuply din po parin kayo ng malunggay powder po?
        I have some buyers na din po of my malunggay powder kasi they like it because the way I sterilize my powder and preparation and also po the outcome of the product is export quality talaga. thanks mam cris

  115. Ano po ba dapat na itsura ng malunggay leaves pag-dry na? Ano po ba kulay? Dapat ba greenish pa rin o okay lng kung ngye-yellowish to brownish na?

    • oo green pa rin siya amatapos mo i dry

  116. Hi! I am interested to buy malunggay powder. Can anyone please advise or refer me kung saan ako makabili? My e-mail add is: louie781@yahoo.com. Thank you.

    • where are you from louie? you may search the net about sellers in your area. like if you are from manila, you add it to your search. good luck

  117. hi ms. cris mahilig po talaga ako sa malunggay kaya gusto ko pong gawin ang paggawa ng powder.puede po bang gamitin and ordinary blender?what kind of grinder po b ang dapat gamitin sa pag grind ng malunggay?macrisanjose@yahoo.com.thank you!!

    • hi cristina,

      blender is fine basta meron siyang dry mill. yung mga blender kasi natin ngayon, yung iba pang wet mill lang. hanapin mo yung me blades siya for dry mill. me mabibili ka niyan, tyaga lang sa paghahanap
      good luck.

  118. Hello po. Mayroon po ba kayong kilalang nagbebenta ng MALUNGGAY POLVORON? Kahit home-made lang po.

    • ssorry aena, wala akong alama sa maynila. censya na

  119. goo day po! Meron po akong psoriasis,sbi ng doktor sakin di daw gumagaling ang skin disease na ito. I try malunggay fo two weeks pero di ko pa alam kung makakatulong ang malunggay.ito n lng ang paraan para gumaling ako ang uminom ng malunggay juice.makakatulong ba sakin ang pag inom ng malunggay?

    • reginald,

      di ba genetic ang psoriasis? i have a friend na meron niyan. she tried vco, yoga, diet, etc. it is still there. but i think the times na wala ang mga sintomas ay yung mga panahon na wala siyang problema. stress i guess triggers psoriasis. mag relax ka kaya. kung kaya mo, bakasyon ka kaya muna. kung di kaya, try to add a cheerful disposition sa kabila ng sitwasyon. alam ko mahirap yun. mag relax maski me tensyon. mahirap din yun. maski ako, di ko siguro kaya yun. pero try it. kasabay ng pagkain mo ng malunggay, at ng iba pang life changing decisions mo.

    • sorry reginald pero di ko alam kung makakagamot. basta ang alam ko makakatulong na mapabuti at mapataas ang immune system mo kaya di na makasasama na kumain ka nito.

      may kaibigan ako na ganito ang problema. marami na siyang sinubukan. ang alam ko basta nasa mga panahong relax siya, wala ang mga sintomas. siguro sikapin lang nating ma relax tayo sa kabila ng mga pagsubok.

  120. Ask ko lng ano ba po ung pag kakaiba ng malunggay n idina dry under d sun,mawawala po b ung mga nutrients o bitamina nito pag inexpose s araw para gawing powder?

    • ang una mong mapapansin sa malunggay na natuyo ng diretso sa ilalim ng araw ay mas mapusyaw ito at mas madaling dumilaw sa pagdaan ng mga buwan.

      siguro kung gagawa ka at gusto mong mabilis matuyo, kaya ibibilad mo sa ilalim ng araw mag lagay ka ng tabing. para ang init lang ng araw ang tumuyo sa mga dahon.

      hindi ko alam kung ano ang kaibahan ng antas ng bitamina ng dahon na natuyo sa init ng araw at air dried.

      ang aking mungkahi sa iyo ay i air-dry mo muna ng isang araw at ipagpatuloy ang pagpapatuyo sa dahon sa ilalim ng araw matapos mong himayin ang mga dahon. ilagay sa isang bilao at takpan para hindi ma alikabukan.

  121. San po nabibili ang malunggay powder nyo dito sa cebu?

    • hi lou,

      at the moment i’m on resting mode pa. will start making it by next year again. though i make sometimes for some old clients.

  122. magawa ba to sa ibang leaf at meron ba din ba ang mga nutrients nito….

    • oo tom puede sa amplaya at puede din sa iba pa. as to exact amount of nutrients left, we really need to have it checked sa lab

      • salamat

  123. i mean maiwan din ba ang nutrients nito?

  124. hi po maam cris, ask ko lang po kung paano ang proper way na pag sterilize/sanitize ng malunggay na hindi mawawala ang mga nutrients/vitamins nito o kung mawawala man ay konti lang. May nabasa po ako water, microwave and steam blanching daw, pwede din daw hugasan ng 1% saline solution. Bale ang procedure ko po ay 3 times kung hinuhugasan, air-dry ko sya ng 1 day tapos idry ko ulit sa microwave oven then grind ko na. Sana po matulungan nyo ako. ty po.

    • ok na yan ron. lalo na kung personal use lang naman.

  125. hi ma’am cris, just drop by and to know if you recieve my mail. Thanks…
    Gob bless…

    roger

    • rogelio, sorry it was really a late reply. got too busy. i’m sorry

  126. hi mam cris ask ko lang po if you are still making malunggay powder? i want to try your malungay powder… im from carcar cebu…

    • hi regie,

      i’m on hiatus. i really hope to have time to start making it by january 2012. hopefully. i will let you know. thanks

  127. marami po sa mg afriends ko po nagtatanong pano po ba malalaman kung may air dry mill ang isang blender para magamit sa pag grind ng malunggay?thanks po! masarap po yung ginawa kong pastillas from your recipe.

    • meron namang mga mill na regular yun na lang hanapin niyo. sa mga supplier yan ng food equipments niyo makikita sa maynila

  128. maam cris,

    gumagawa ako nang malunggay capsule sa bahay lang manually…. tanong sana ako kung saan makabili nang capsule filler machine (portable) with a capacity of 24 capsules every 2 seconds. Dito po ako sa Cebu. Saan kaya dito sa Cebu City ang meron nito.

    Salamat kaayo.

    paul (paulbiolango@yahoo.com.ph) 09089667463

    • sorry paul pero di ko alam kung saan makakabili.
      pero ang ipapayo ko lang kung gagawa na kayo ng capsules, make sure lang na yung powder mismo ay na pa laboratory niyo na sa dost. makikita kasi dun ang quality . importante ang molds/yeast at iba pang mga dapat i test. ang dost region 7 laboratory ay nasa ecotech lahug. pagpasok mo sa road, kita mo muna ang deped. then lakad ka pa, sa left ay parang office of the ombudsman bldg. sa may left side sa unahan pa ay dost.

      • maam cris, ako po ay umiinom sa gawa ko pong malunggay capsules, that is 2 capsules before taking my meals, 3 times a day….. napansin ko po na palagi akong kinakabagan at ang aking urine ay kulay green…. masama po kaya iyon? hindi kaya overdose yon? sa ngaun 1 capsule na lang ako tuwing umaga before breakfast. My mother likes it very much….. she takes 1 capsule every after meal….. nawala ang kanyang pananakit sa tiyan o (acidic ulcer) and she is 84 years old now….. thanks maam cris…..

  129. thanks po sa idea na e popowder ang malunggay,,, actually, i am making malunggay ice cream as my science investigatory project.. it was VERY SUCCESFUL TALAGA… pro nung ginawa ko yung project ko, i used pureed malunggay leaves.. but after mong sinaba na mas nagiging effective ang malunggay, i will try and use it instead.. more power… ( SA MGA GUSTO NG MALUNGGAY ICE CREAM RECIPE, ASK NYO NLANG AKO, IM WILLING TO SHARE, BESIDES MADALI LANG NAMAN TALAGANG GAWIN) :)

  133. Hello, I am a yoga teacher from Bali, Indonesia. Thanks a lot for nice info.

  134. mam, makakatulong ba ang malungay sa autism paano?

    • di ko alam. pero alam ko ang vco nakakatulong sa special children. pero mas masanay ang anak mo sa mga natural na pagkain, at di mga pagkain na nakaplastic na o nakalata. (biskwit, delata) mas maganda di makakain ng may harina at matatamis na pagkain. mga energy fuds and drinks candies etc ay di maganda.

  135. hi maam cris, ask ko lang po..hindi po ba maka overdose ang malunggay para sa buntis?

    • maski anong bagay masama pag sobra. i limit mo lang lalo na at buntis ka.

  136. gud day po, ask ko po pano pag gawa ng malungay lotion. nkktanggal din po b to ng anan ang allergies tnx po

    • gud day wilma. am sorry pero di ko alam eh.

  137. Cris,

    I was reading your blog and please allow me to say that people like you are “God Send” . I just hope that there are more people like you and I (I am trying to be one like, hehehehe! LOL). I am researching the Internet, and all any other information that I can get. I have a lot of info that I have gathered from my own research and just fine tuning my resources and applying it more to myself and sharing it to whoever who wants it, in order to help out anybody in the whole world.

    I accidentally stumbled in your blog because I want to know how to powder vegetables leaves particularly Gymnema Sylvestre (still I cannot find a source of the leaves to plant), instead, I am using Ampaya or Bitter Mellon or Bitter Gourd (as an alternate to Gynema Sylvestre for Diabetes), and will try Banaba, & Malungay.

    I think I have found the a cheap way to prolong Life up to 100-years without Cancer, Stroke, High Blood Pressure and Diabetes. It is really very simple but nobody taught since I was a young Boy from Dumaguete City – the City of gentle People, hehehehe! LOL, then finished my Civil Engineering Degree in C I T and then worked as an Engineer/Builder all over the Philippines and then all overt the World and finally settled here in L A , California. They all taught to eat meat for protein.

    I look behind my past – I can remember that I used to be a good looking 32-year old and all of a sudden of I look old, burnt skin, arthritic joints, bulging tummy, overweight and was taking 10 – prescription drugs for High Blood Pressure, Arthritis, Diabetes, Prostates and soon at a young age of 65 (I look like I a 55-years old, really, not that bad). My body is weak and drowsy all the time – like a walking Zombie. I have a diminished quality of life – the only thing that is doing good for me is my Libido – it is not affected yet, hehehehe, LOL.

    Last time I went my doctor and I insisted that I will stop my meds but he did not agree. Please be informed that in the Philippines or in the U S, there is a conspiracy – Biggggg Time, by the Doctors, Pharmaceutical Companies, and the food industry, with the Government support to fool the population – to eat meat (advertise as protein and milk) and to take drugs when sick. Government. The meat products are all scientifically altered with hormones. These hormones will activate your inborn Cancer Genes floating around your body, the results, for women – Cancer of the Breast, vaginal, cervix, ovary, liver, pancreas and any other cancer you can activate and for men, most the same as women except the reproductive organs which of course men do not have.

    It is really very simple which we should teach everybody not to eat Beef, Pork, Chicken and any meat products. Eat fish but make sure there is Mercury contamination and eat four to six kinds of fruits and four the six kinds of vegetables, as colorful (as green, yellow, red blue. violet and soon as possible) with a kalamansi, suka, sili, luya, mint leaves (in bisaya -kalungongkugong). In order word, eat a salad all the time. This is a simple vegetarian diet. If you want o lost weight, do this for at least four weeks or when you attain your goals and then become a Vegan (eating meat products at least once a week).

    Do not limit your food intake on a Plant based diet. You can eat as much as you want and do not count calories. Since I can not eat that many fruits and vegetables, I grind it and add water to make it drinkable and refrigerate for a four day supply separately for the fruits, the salads, and now the ampalaya. Two full glass of the fruit and salads at less three times a day, and 1/2 glass three times a day of ampalaya, it tatse awful but thsi is fro my survival – when I dink this otherwise somebody else will be wearing my pajamas an sleeping besides my beautiful girlfriend, hehehehe! LOL ( I am kidding – I have been married for 40-years).

    Now for the result, I was a 240 -pounder, 5 feet 10 inches who drinks 24-bottles of San Miguel a day when I was a good looking 24- years old to an ugly, old and worn out 65 -years old, taking 10- meds, and will be on a dialysis machine within 5 to 10 years and might die at the age of 75- years old. I am showing to God that I am helping myself and I need his help to help me prolong my life to 100- years old. And I think it is working for me because now, I am only taking 5-meds and and now 180 – pounds ( I need to be at least 170-pounds, my weight in High School).

    I controlled my diabetes which by the way I will tell my doctor that I am cutting my Diabetes and High Blood Pressure meds to at least 50 %, on Friday.

    To all, please help me attain my goal and if I can be of help, please send me an Email to:

    - virgilironwood01@gmail.com
    - or text at 818 431 0786

    The following are the information I need:

    1. Where can I find to buy and grow a Gymnema Sylvestre Plant?
    2. Ampalaya can be grown here in L A but it is expensive.
    3. How to powder ampalaya fruit with seeds and leaves. currently I am grinding this and drinking it fresh but the supply might not last. I need some reserve in powder form.
    4. Kalambugay is not available her in L A – seldom but it can grow here. I will try to dry this as per your guidance
    5. Banaba is not found here in L A.

    For all those Kababayans, therre is a big market here in the U S for a powdered vegetables. It needs a P I Gov Cerfication thought. I can be your distributor here in L A.

    Please help me

    • thanks sir for what you shared. i hope some of our friends will email you regarding your inquiry.

      • ate cristina

        i’m a 1st year student
        ito po ksi ung gagawin kong IP

        gno poh bah ktagl gagawin poh yan?..

      • 3 to 5 days depende sa panahon. pag may ulan, malamig din ang hangin kaya iitim yung dahon pero basa pa

  138. mam cris,

    turuan nio po ako kung panu magpatuyo ng malunggay in the proper way po…

    • hello!

      sa pag harvest pa lang iwagwag mo na ang mga dahon bago mo ilagay sa malaking planggana. pag natapos na ang harvest isa-isahin mo na naman ang mga dahon para tanggalin ang mga rejects. kasi kung minsan dahil sa sikat ng araw may di ka napapansin, nakalulusot na insekto o sirang dahon.

      sa paghuhugas, isa isahin mo rin mas maganda kung sa flowing water. if water is scarce then fill a basin with enough water and wash the leaves thoroughly. Do this at least three times. tie at least 2 or three and hang in drying wires.

      In air drying you need to make sure that the sun will shine at least three days. This is to make sure that your drying room is hot enough to dry the leaves. you may open a few windows to let air flow but a lot of air will darken the leaves. when the leaves are cruchy then you may start removing each leaf manually.

  139. Hi Ms. Chris!

    Thanks for you blog. :) I’m also very interested in how to make powdered malunggay. My kids don’t like to eat vegetables so, ang ginagawa ko ngshshake ako ng fruits and then nilalagyan ko ng malunggay. kaso may distinct malunggay taste kaya inaayawan ng mga kids. Napansin ko minsan nung nilagay ko sa ref ang malunggay and it stayed there for like 2-3 days, dried and crunchy na sya nung kinuha ko. Pwede kaya gamitin yon at gawing powdered? Thanks! :)

    • di ko pa yun nasubukan.

  140. May problem po ako sa mata unti-unti itong lumalabo makaktulong po kaya ang malunggay powder sa condition ko? Thanks, Liza

    • maski siguro fresh malunggay makakatulong sa iyong mga mata. maitanong ko lang, kung mahilig ka ba sa matatamis. nabasa ko kasi na ang asukal nakapanglalabo ng mata. Lalong lalo na yung mga manufactured foods (breads, biscuits, juices, tea, soda) o yung mga galing sa panaderya na mga caked, etc. kung ihinto mo muna ang pagkain ng matamis, obserbahan mo kung meron bang pagbabago.

  141. Ask ko lang po kung nagbebenta ka pa ng malunggay powder at kung nasa Parkmall ka pa rin??

    • hindi na muna ako nagbebenta ng malunggay powder. masyadong nabusy ang buhay kaya di na muna maasikaso. pero i really hope to make a comeback when all is well.

  142. sa park mall lang ako bumibili ng malunggay powder, pero mula po ng tumigil kayo sa pagbebenta natigil na rin ang pagamit namin ng malunggay porder, saan po kaya ako makakabili dito sa Cebu?

    • wala akong alam na gumagawa na small business. meron yung gawa ng mg malalaking kumpanya. nahihiya ako sa mga suki ko pero di ko na kasi kaya sa panahong ito. pipilitin kong makabalik sa lalong madaling panahon. pasensya na.

    • wala kasi akong alam Ugin. I will post here kung gagawa na ulit ako ng malunggay powder. Salamat sa pagtangkilik!

  143. Hello again Ms. Cris! salamat sa pag-reply mo sa message ko. Tanong ulit ako kung ano ba ang regular dosage ng malunggay powder a day? Yung average na dosage at kung meron bang overdose nito?? Salamat ulit.

    • 1/2 o 1 tsp of malunggay powder can be added to 1 cup of beverage. puede na hot or cold. as to regular, puede siguro 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup in the evening.

  144. hello. I find this site very helpful and interesting. I just want to ask if it is possible to make coffeee out of malunggay leaves or seeds. I’m helping my kid on her in her research thanks!

    • You have two choices:

      1. either you mix malunggay powder with regular coffee. then maybe you can also add creamer and sugar to make it 4 in 1 coffee.

      2. roast the malunggay seeds, grind then drink as coffee. since mlunggay seeds are soft, you may break it first before roasting.

      However, my own opinion is its easier to do the first one. leaves are abundant and malunggay do not bear fruits whole year round.

      • thanks very much for your info

  145. ate cristina ok po yung blog po ninyo ang dami ko po natutunan …im a marketing student balak ko po gawing product moringa fruit shake… salamat po sa mga idea.. more power and happy new year

  146. Mam cris napaka informative po ng site na ito,sasamantalahin ko na ang pagkakataon na ito para sa mga supplyer ng malunggay dahon pls.contact me at 09228582575 para maarrange natin kung pano tyo magtatransakyon.salamat po!

  147. bkt po hndi pwede idry na direct to the light? tnx po.

    • una kaya di puede na direct light ay dahil na didiscolor ang malunggay. pumupusyaw ang dahon at naapektuhan ang color quality ng finish product.

      ikalawa, based on my readings, direct light destroys some of the nutrients present in the malunggay

  148. Hi Ms. Christina =D Isa po akong 2nd year highschool student ng Quezon City Academy at gusto ko po sna magtnung kung paano po mkakagawa ng Cooking oil mula sa Seeds at anu pa po ba yung iba po na pwedeng mgawa sa mga seeds nito po? sana po ay matulungan mo po ako =D

  149. ano po ba ang meron sa sunlight bat nagdecrease ang nutrients

    • alam mo valid yung question mo. ano nga ba ang masama s init ng araw?

      siguro dahil during the day, may oras na sobrang init kaya nadadamage ang nutrients. pero, sa totoo lang nabasa ko rin lang yan. wala akong supporting research kung anong nutrients ang nasisira. at kung gaano karami ang nababawas.

      Pero ang sure na maisasagot ko sa yo kung bakit makakasama sa finish product mo ang init ng direct sunlight ay naiiba ang kulay ng iyong product. so ang color appeal mo ay iba.

      ang magandang malunggay powder ay dark green p rin ang kulay pag naka pack na. Hindi yellowish o light green.

  150. Hi,
    Is there anyone breastfeeding mom tried the powdered malunggay?? Does it help her to produce more milk if we put this powdered malunggay to the food that the mom will eat??

    Thanks,

    Jennie :)

  151. Thankyooooou Cristina for this blog. :))) Very useful for my Feasibility Study. :))

  152. Hello po. :)
